RE: Marthar's Restaurant in RGV???

The Martha's I remember is on Val Verde, just south of 83 and just north of Casa del Sol (which is just north of Palm Shadows). It's between Alamo and Donna.

RE: Sleep Number Mattress Questions

We have one at home, and had one in our previous MH. It only needed electrical power for adjustments to the pressure. Once it was set, it stayed at the set pressure just fine, unless there was a leak which is a whole different issue. We dry camped often and had no trouble using the bed.

RE: replace over the cab bed with cabinets for storage

We also use the space for storage, but didn't want to put in anything permanent in case we needed the sleeping space for a grandkid someday. Instead of plastic totes, my DW uses baskets. She has found a variety of sizes that hold our stuff pretty well, and in her opinion look better than plastic totes. Works for us.

RE: Electrical Issue

Sounds like maybe the GFI outlet tripped.

RE: electrical cord

I do a combination of the two ideas. When the weather is warm and we are going to be staying for more than just one night, I fight with the cord and coil it in. For a one-nighter or cold weather, I leave the cord coiled in its space and add a 30 amp extension cord to the end. The extension cord is much easier to coil, even when cold. I know the extra length will add to the voltage drop, but we usually aren't running the AC in cold weather and we keep an eye on the amount of "juice" we use.

RE: How to make up corner beds

We have the corner bed and use our regular sheets. On the cut-off corner, the fitted sheet just gets tucked under the mattress. It's not been a problem. Making the bed is not as easy as a walk-around bed, but it is a price we are willing to pay to get the shorter MH. When the bed is made, it is not as pretty as a walk-around might be, but who cares.

RE: 16 year old just drove off in my truck

Friend of mine, long time ago. When he bought his daughter's first car threatened to take out the back seat. His reasoning was it was usually a car load of kids that got into terrible accidents. Her response... "Great, room for a mattress". The seat stayed in. Hah With the same idea in mind, the first "car" we bought for our 16 year old daughter was a very well used Chevy S-10 pickup. Bucket seats in front, and that's it. In our suburban area, pickups are not what kids want to drive. Her first reaction was Ewwww (or something like that). After a month or so, her pickup was the cool ride, and everyone wanted be the one person who got to ride with her.

RE: Where are we 2014?

Slowing down a little? How about this one. http://i873.photobucket.com/albums/ab295/JohnM9020/DSC_0100.jpg width=640 Merrimac Ferry in Central Wisconsin. The only "free" ferry in Wisconsin, been on it countless times. Sorry it took me so long to get back. Yes, it's the Merrimac Ferry.

RE: My sister bought a camper

I remember back in the late 1960's and early 1970's folks would take their vans and convert them into "hippi vans". You know install shag carpet on the sides, put beds in the back, install a table and swivel captains chairs, their 8 track tape decks with boom-box speakers all around, their ice chest stocked with Budweiser and their hidden compartments for their (contraband illegal smoking materials). Those vans have sure come a long way. That looks really nice! I hope she has a lot of good memories with it. Hey, I resemble that remark! :B Mine was a Chevy. Remember the song "Chevy Van"? Hmmm. LOL

RE: Rosemont RV show

I had planned to go, but the DW decided I wanted to do something else. :( Hope you all have a good time and don't spend too much, LOL

RE: Where are we 2014?

Let's go from trains to boats. http://i873.photobucket.com/albums/ab295/JohnM9020/IMG_0429.jpg width=640 Time for a small hint? This time of year, this place looks nothing like this. It's the schooner Hjordis. Not sure of your pictures location, but she sails out of Duluth Harbor. Close enough. It is the Hjordis, but she sails out of Grand Marais, MN where this was taken.

We need to start narrowing this one down. Are we looking at one of the Great Lakes? I was thinking the same thing. I will take a WAG. Is it 4 Mile Creek State Park in Youngstown, NY. Nope, not New York, but it is one of the Great Lakes. The "Greatest" one actually. It's the boat that's the giveaway to the location for those that know the area.

An easy one for an easy one. http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y128/Veebyes/Trailer%20Travels/IMG_0917627_zps02480231.jpg Going in the opposite direction. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/b/b5/Durango_Silverton_Train.jpg width=555 Looks like Durango to Silverton RR ?

RE: Campfire fanny warmer

The charcoal in a can sounds like a great idea. We rarely sit out when it's in the 30's but often when it's in the 50's. We have a couple of rectangular, rubber backed throw-rugs that go in our chairs; down the back and across the seat. Keeps the back and butt nice and warm.
